Clients hire us to solve their people problems before they become profit problems. We do this by helping them uncover the real reasons for the issues, which often arise through bad communication, unrealistic expectations, and/or poor leadership practices. Most leaders start with the best of intentions, and it is remarkably easy to make day to day decisions that have unintended negative consequences for our workforce. 

Our consultants, facilitators, and coaches are trained to walk beside you through complex people issues, whether it’s a team that is not performing as it should; a leader who needs to develop self-awareness, interpersonal skills, or executive presence; or a board of directors who are out of alignment with vision and mission.

How we work

You have high standards for yourself and those you work with.

We do too. 

Our four-part approach walks you through what it takes to shift your culture, embrace change, and build leaders who are ready for whatever the future brings. Culture shifting takes time, but it means the difference between succeeding with your next high stakes initiative or failing as so many change efforts do. It requires changes in personal processes and habits in every leader and team member. That’s a lot of moving parts. 


We do a deep dive with you and your stakeholders, including a decision-maker strategy session, individual stakeholder interviews, an assessment of your current metrics, competencies, key performance indicators, and training materials. It helps to know what is working and what isn’t, from multiple perspectives. At the end, you get a full report with timeline and investment, and we co-create the solution with you. 


During the IGNITE phase, the people in your organization begin to envision their new future and purpose through updated guiding principles, and they start the process of building new leadership skills for their future workplace and culture. Two critical pieces to success are gaining 100% commitment from your executive team, and Radical Self Awareness about their leadership styles and beliefs. We do that through the Aligned Leader™ Program for Executives. Companies who take the time to do this experience greater Return on Investment than those who don’t.


We AMPLIFY your culture through clear and consistent communication throughout your organization. We use a suite of assessments to help your leaders and team members understand themselves and others better. And we begin the process of taking your leadership team through the Aligned Leader™ Program, customized for your organization and culture. We follow up with individual and group coaching to support new skills learned.


Your results are OPTIMIZED by cascading the new vision throughout the organization’s processes and procedures. We build awareness of the energy in your workplace, what drives people, and how to harness the genius potential of your workforce. We help you align your recruiting practices and build an immersion process to successfully onboard new hires and makes them feel like they belong. We train your individual contributors and continue to work with your leaders on building inclusive workplaces. 

Culture-shifting and leadership work are never really done.

The world constantly changes and so does your workforce.

It takes truly resilient leaders to lead in today’s workplace.

Our Story

The Birth of Aligned at Work®
The idea for Aligned at Work® was born in the early 1990s as Laurie Battaglia went through a government takeover of the savings and loan where she worked. It awakened the entrepreneurial spirit in her as the thought arose, “There MUST be a way to balance people and profit, in an ethical workplace!” But she hadn’t seen it done. 

By this time, Laurie’s career had pivoted, and she landed in Learning & Development after 15 years in front-line operations, leadership, and sales/marketing. She began to discover the work that would continue through Aligned at Work®. As she worked with the team members in her savings and loan to write resumes, get rehired by acquiring banks, and stay positive as their work was in jeopardy, she learned the lessons of clear and transparent communication, staying in touch constantly, and letting people know what she did and didn’t know. It was life changing.

Her next move was into Leadership Development, where she facilitated a world-class program with hundreds of leaders impacted. And it was back to school for a Masters Degree in Organizational Development and Leadership, and later to Coach Certification. She learned through it all that she’d been practicing great leadership from childhood, and now she had the tools and models to teach it to others.

When do leaders call Aligned at Work®?

Leaders call us when:

  • They are losing people due to poor or unskilled leadership throughout the organization.
  • They’ve promoted from within, and it’s costing them money, a lot of money. 
  • They suffer from reputational risk – their online ratings are poor to medium. 
  • Executives are focused on the business and bottom line, to the exclusion of the people. Their teams work long hours, and it’s wearing people out. But they don’t know how to change. 

Isn’t it time for you, your leaders, and your organization to be Aligned at Work®?
